Colorado Fall Color Photography Workshop in Ridgway / Dallas Divide

09/28/2019 @ 5:00 am - 09/29/2019 @ 8:00 pm


Fall Foliage in Southwestern Colorado

The area around Dallas Divide/Mt. Sneffles/Ridgeway is arguably the most beautiful fall color location in the United States. The combination of beautiful fall foliage with towering European style crag peaks is a site to behold. We invite you to experience and capture the grand nature’s spectacle with the crew at American Photo Treks.

We’ll do all the driving. Let us take you on the scenic mountain roads to our favorite fall color photo sites and help you capture this splendor for yourself.

Each day of your adventure will start by watching the sun rise and bathe APT favorite sunrise locations in glorious warm light. We will then drive you to some places that are a little hard to get to and not always well known, but so worth the effort. We’ll shoot and talk photography all-day and end each day by capturing the gorgeous mountain sunsets from our prime locations. You will come home with fall color images you will be proud to share and print.

What’s Included:

  • Photo instruction sheets provided in advance so you will be well prepared to capture the color.
  • We will do all the driving to our favorite photo spots in the area.
  • We will provide expert assistance at the shooting locations and offer insights to ensure you capture the photographs you envision.
  • As always, after the workshop, we will provide post-processing videos demonstrating how we post-process the images.

What’s Not Included:

  • Lodging, you will need to secure your own lodging in the Ridgeway area .
  • Meals, snacks and drinks. We will have large coolers for storing lunches.

Please read the following information carefully:

        We are staying at the Ridgeway State Park campground. I would suggest looking in Ouray, Ridgeway, or Montrose for hotel accommodations. Montrose is about 25 minutes away, and might be a bit cheaper.

    Hi there!
    I am trying to sign up for this but for some reason it won’t let me load it into my cart. It keeps saying that my cart is empty. What do you suggest?

    • carolynhope

      False alarm…I was finally able to get it to work. Yay! Not sure what that was about. I tried it three times before it worked. See you in September!

  2. Scott Fishman

    I was wondering if you were going to be sending out any additional information on the Ridgeway trip. I haven’t heard or seen anything since I signed up a month ago.


    • KenC

      There will be more details forthcoming in a week or so.
